Xbox Live director 'Major Nelson' has posted the top Xbox Live games for 2007 -- including top played multiplayer titles, and top purchased Xbox Live Arcade games -- showing a predictable dominance of Halo 3, and a clear preference from XBLA shoppers for classic over new titles. The list includes statistics for both Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles, and has Halo 3 and Halo 2 leading both categories, followed by Gears of War, and the more recent Call of Duty 4 taking a surprising lead considering its end of year release. Turning to Xbox Live Arcade sales data, Konami's arcade port TMNT 1989 Arcade leads all others, followed by Worms and another Konami release -- its PlayStation port Castlevania: SOTN. The full lists reprinted from Major Nelson are as follows: 2007 Top Xbox 360 Titles (UU’s) 1 Halo 3 2 Gears of War 3 Call of Duty 4 4 Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 5 Call Of Duty 3 6 Crackdown 7 Oblivion 8 Guitar Hero II 9 Forza Motorsport 2 10 Lost Planet 2007 Top Xbox LIVE Arcade Titles (Sales) 1 TMNT 1989 Arcade 2 Worms 3 Castlevania: SOTN 4 UNO 5 Bomberman LIVE 6 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures 7 Sonic The Hedgehog 8 Pinball FX 9 Geometry Wars Evolved 10 Texas Hold 'em 2007 Top Original Xbox Titles (UU’s) 1 Halo 2 2 Star Wars: Battlfrnt 2 3 Counter-Strike 4 Battlefield 2: MC 5 Doom 3 6 Forza Motorsport 7 Madden NFL 07 8 Conker: Live Reloaded 9 Call of Duty 3 10 Rainbow Six 3
